Product #M241

This is an awesome item! Just think, at one time just about every old country school had one of these in their classroom. Now, they are so hard to find. This planetarium is totally complete and in working condition. It has a wooden “arm” that still has the original brass tag that reads: THE TRIPPENSEE PLANETARIUM; PAT. U.S. MAR. 10, ’08; CANADA JULY 21, ’08; THE TRIPPENSEE MFG. CO.; DETROIT, MICH., U.S.A. It has the brass base which has names the months, astrology signs and the seasons. It has the turned wood foot and arm which is still in the original finish, very nice condition! The arm contains the brass tag mentioned earlier as well as a small compass mounted into the arm.. It has the globe of the world which is the original paper litho. It has two wooden balls to represent the moon. Then there is the large brass ball (sun).  It measures 14″ tall and the arm is 16 3/4″ long. Don’t miss adding this fine piece to your own antique collection.
